Anticipating rising water levels and floods
To help areas facing a risk of flooding
Egis is proposing a forecasting, risk monitoring, warning and crisis management system. It prioritises a holistic approach that takes into account economic aspects, land use, social needs and environmental protection. This system was awarded a Special Award at National Engineering Grand Prix.
> Enables a spatialised cost-benefit analysis of protection measures against flooding
> Reduces the vulnerabilityo f people and assets
> Results in increased economic, health and environmental benefits
> Forecasting system
Coastlines are the most exposed areas to climate change
Egis has developed IT modelling tools to study phenomena and how these change and develop the coastline accordingly in order to preserve it. This solution prioritises soft protection techniques, for example ‘reconstituting’ the dune ridge with vegetation.
> IT modelling tools
> Selecting development projects appropriate to the area with capacity for adding value
> Minimising the impacts of the projects and organising the compensation of these
